A rejoinder: Terrorists and their apologists; India Is Another Israel

A Kashmiri woman crying over her dead – killed by Indian Army

By Dr. S.M. Rahman

Imtiaz Alam, editor of South Asian Journal, in his over-enthusiasm, has projected India as the peace-loving nation – by implication a great proponent of ‘Ahinsa’ and ‘non-violence’, and that it is the perfect ‘model’ in South Asia, as all its neighbors are at peace with it, except Pakistan, which is notorious, brutish and nourishes hatred and antipathy against it and is perpetually engaged in acts of terrorism in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) and several other on-going insurgencies. The article appears, as if it was an Indian writer, quite proficient in art of propaganda and has used “card-stacking technique” of projecting only the positive elements and completely ignoring the dark realities that constitute the major truth.I would say that silence could be the best answer to the ‘grandiose’ ideas he has of the ‘Indian society.’ With respect to the plight of the Muslims in India, I would expect the writer to read the book (if not read already),‘The Passive Voice’ by K.L. Gauba. He was a Muslim Congressite and against Pakistan’s creation, who migrated to India after the partition. This book though written a bit earlier, exhaustively covered the sad plight of the Muslims, as to how they were being discriminated against for employment in civil services, including police besides the armed forces. I distinctly remember that he mentioned about one Muslim scholar, a PhD from Banaras Hindu University who was serving as dispatch rider in one of the civil departments in Delhi. What has happened consequently is even more agonizing. I will not go into the recent surveys, suffice it to say that their plight is even lower than that of Dalits. Asra Nomani, one of the most liberated Muslim women and exceedingly pro-western, in her write-up has depicted the miserable plight of Indian Muslims, who are at the bottom of social hierarchy.

In one of the surveys in 1980’s, there were around 10,000 castes In India. Barun Mitra has written in an article India gone backward on castes. He is the director of liberty Institute – a think-tank in New Delhi and his article was published in India (reproduced by daily Nation, Pakistan, dated May 20, 2010). He writes: “Bhimrao, Ramji, Ambedkar, who chaired the committee that drafted Indian Constitution, was forbidden to touch water pots – as he was from a lower caste. Barely 40 years ago in New Delhi, it was not uncommon to find Brahman teachers, refusing to eat or drink if they were served by lower castes.”

I shall narrate one instance of one of my own students at Rajshahi University, Department of Psychology (former East Pakistan), who after the emergence of Bangladesh had gone to India for his doctorate in the University of Allahabad. When he had visited Lahore for a conference, he met me with incredible love and affection. When I asked him as to what were his experiences in India, he said, “one of the very shocking one was that, when I had submitted my thesis for the approval to the Professor (my supervisor), there was some errors to be corrected. He offered his pen, but to his bewilderment, the full Professor of the University refused taking pen from a Muslim as it would pollute him.” So the ‘myth of India’ which was so arduously created through the Indian media during the days when Bangladesh had not come into being, I thought that myth was eroded from his mind. There were many other ‘experiences’ which did not match with the ground realities. I am not touching much about the massacre of Muslims in Gujrat. How were they chopped off like carrots and radish? It is indeed very painful to recall the Ayodhiya episode of demolishing the historical Muslims mosque. Besides Muslims, Dalits, even Christians were not spared. How a Pope along with his family members were burnt alive inside the car at Orissa. Several other incidents of raping of Christian nuns and their killing, have come to light.

Over five lac soldiers in the IHK are not playing kabaddi? The atrocities being committed on their part are the worst instances of crime against humanity. If some radical Muslims reacted to such mega killings of over 80,000, the so called liberals tend to dub them as “terrorists”, completely forgetting that ‘state terrorism’, which is at the root of ‘radicalism’, and essentially reactive in nature. Every self-respecting citizen has a right to defend his freedom. Not to do it, is servility, which is repugnant to the adherents of Islamic faith. They will die rather than surrender. This is exactly what Afghan resistance is about. They may be fanatics, fundamentalists, whatever, but give them the credit that they served as iron force against the contemporary Super Powers, former Soviet Union and now the USA, the empire builders. Invasion of countries like Iraq and Afghanistan are blatant acts of aggression. Killing of millions of Muslims in Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan and Iraq are nothing but crimes against humanity, if justice at all prevailed in the World Order.

  – No community is safe at the hands of Indian State Machinery –

If Kashmir issue were resolved Pakistani society would emerge as a paradise of peace. It has no extra territorial ambitions as India has. No doubt, there are differences among the Islamic faith just as there are so many denominations in Protestant faith, leaving alone the broad division between the Catholics and the Protestants. Allah has never designed the world for a monolithic order. The dignity of diversity is to be preserved. The miscreants, who are committing acts of terrorism, are essentially trying to fan divisions between Muslims. This is an age old strategy of balkanizing Muslims and atomizing them into as many splinter groups as possible. This is to break their unity. The terrorists are fully equipped with sophisticated weapons, which our police force does not possess. Where from are they coming? Who is funding them? These are the questions to be resolved through a well deliberated counter-terrorism strategy achieved through a broad consensus among the political parties.

Ironically, a ‘construct’ of ‘conspiracy’ has been created as a propaganda gimmick, in order to discredit any hypothesis/idea which is likely to be proven factual. It is a strategy of camouflaging facts and realities. There is thus a ‘big conspiracy’ against the so called ‘conspiracy theories.’ It is much easier to dismiss a reality by simply saying: “Ah! It is one of those ‘conspiracy theories.’ The terrorists, who are rampant in Pakistan, are not ‘Taliban’. Pakistani Taliban or Punjabi Taliban are some of the semantic manipulations to defame Pakistan as if it were an abode of radicals, fanatics and ‘terrorists.’. India on the other hand is free from such menace. That there are fissiparous trends in 17 or more Indian states is very shrewdly concealed. What about the Naxellites? They are overly active in quite a number of states, and that they are gaining in strength. India is finding it difficult to contain them. Were Indian forces not involved in fanning Tamil separatism in Sri Lanka?

Pakistan’s radicalism is a post 9/11 phenomenon. The society, otherwise was relatively quite peaceful, adhering to the middle –of-the-road approach to Islamic ideology. Unfortunately, General Ziaul Haq in order to perpetuate his hold, produced radical forces to fight against the former Soviet Union.  USA patronized them and when the Red Army had left Afghanistan, USA quite callously abandoned the freedom fighters. If a national government comprising representatives of Pakhtuns, Tajiks, Uzbeks and other minorities would have been formed, Afghanistan would not have been in the state of chaos as it is . The fault is entirely of USA, which covertly wanted it to be fragmented through warlordism.

The “terrorists”, operating in Pakistan are no a ‘monolithic entity. These are those who during the Soviet war were radicalized by the inept policy of Ziaul Haq and later on the reactions against Pervez Musharraf’s very naively conceived policy of pleasing the US government by propounding the so called ‘enlightened moderation’, what actually meant, was to sheepishly adopt the western values, not realizing that Muslims could be very modern, yet they maintain the core values of their faith, which gives them their real ‘identity’ and respect among the comity of nations.

Now about the “Strategic Depth’, which is a straight forward concept to achieve attitudinal harmony between Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan, as very natural regional allies. A well deliberated geopolitical strategy has to be conceived creating mutual trust and harmony so that under conditions of peace, these countries reinforce each other’s prosperity through trade and cooperation and under crises, they act similarly as EU countries do. If any of the countries in EU, is attacked by an adversary, “it would be taken as if it were an attack on EU”, that is collectively they would protect each other. Why should it be a taboo for the Muslim countries, that they should not forge a ‘cohesive mutual paradigm of inter-existence.’? “Strategic Depth is never a narrow concept of “physical depth”, but a depth of security in all its dimensions. It is based on trust and a firm commitment to honour the dignity and identity of each other. No amount of propaganda can deter these countries to ultimately converge on a collective paradigm, which provides ‘strategic security.’ Too much voice is being raised against a legitimate concept – ‘Strategic Depth’ – as some one rightly said: “The higher the voice, the smaller the intellect.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
